Mix of the Week – Kayla Painter

A curated series where Mesh commission artists to make an hour-long mix of whatever inspires them to experiment, produce, and what they listen to.

Adopted Bristolian, Kayla Painter connects Mesh to sound on this months series, which is also the name of her aptly titled radio show on Giles Petersons’ World Wide FM. Kayla compiles an hour-long demonstration of her innovative and experimental palette ranging all the way from mid-paced downtempo bass stompers, bouncy jovial electro to warping melodic IDM productions with some firm original works from her own projects.

“The cover for this mix was a collaboration between myself and my longstanding visual artist, Jason Baker. We work closely together on creating a unique audiovisual world with my live show, and this carries across to artwork too. I wanted to reflect the detail in some of the tracks I’ve chosen for this mix in the artwork, which we did by choosing the texture of the landscape. The artwork is an extension of the visual world we create, which explores lost futures through recontextualising objects and spaces that feel familiar.” – Kayla Painter
